As Raymond Evison Clematis was not able to exhibit at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show, the plants have been looked after and trained so that they could be used to create a display for the people of Guernsey to see and enjoy, and to raise money for charity.
The display will open to the public on 30th and 31st May from 10:00 until 16:00 each day, it will comply to the regulations that are in place at the time, with Social Distancing being strictly adhered to.
The exhibit will consist of over 1,500 flowering clematis plants. The theme is a ‘Seashores’ scene, with blue and white clematis depicting the sea, and there will be 5 boats coming ashore full of different coloured flowering clematis.
The design will be similar to what would have been seen at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show and also similar the last years Gold Medal Winning Chelsea Flower Show Exhibit . The exhibition is free of charge but donations are most welcomed and encouraged for two Charities, The Queens Nurses and The Guernsey Botanical Trust, who will both be in attendance during the event.
The exhibit is being staged at The Guernsey Clematis Nursery site at Braye Vineries, Route
Militaire, Vale, GY3 5RP
